We had an amazing time at the house. We used it to get ready for our wedding and then it was our honeymoon. We can not wait to use the house in the future! Thanks for everything and for allowing us to relax. We really enjoyed the guided boat tour also. The Coleys, St Petersburg, FL.

We love staying at this house. We bring all of the adult kids and have plenty of room for our brood. It's a great location for getting to the beach, a ball game, or even Disney. I have to admit it's tempting just to hang around and enjoy the pool. Thanks again Brian. We hope to be back soon.

We had a really good time at this house, and especially enjoyed watching the birds that liked resting and drying their wings on the dock. Brian was responsive, going as far as to come out to fix a bike chain for us because we are mechanically clueless. Plus, the house has a lot of amenities: bikes, kayaks, a safety fence around the pool. It was also well stocked--spices, for example--and even bike helmets and life jackets were provided.

As far as location goes, the street is really quiet, but traffic all around, especially at rush hour, was way more intense than we expected. Driving into Tampa for the aquarium, etc., took closer than an hour than to 30 minutes. This is a good base if you just want to go to the beach, though, and the passes Brian provides are awesome.

The appliances in the house have seen better days. They all worked, but some were very very loud / creaky. The house was clean, but the appliances (dryer, dishwasher) could have used wiping down, which my mother ended up doing because, you know, she couldn't help it. The other thing is that the three bedrooms on the main floor all share one bathroom, which consists of a bath and sink separated from the toilet by a sliding door that didn't shut all the way. We found ourselves going down to the ground floor if we wanted privacy. I think this setup would be awkward if you weren't all in the same family.

This is a tough place to be with a toddler in that we were afraid for him to be out in the yard because there was nothing keeping him from going out on the dock / falling into the bay--but that's the price you pay for the view, which again, was wonderful.

So would we come back? I think so, mainly for the amenities and Brian's responsiveness and... say it with me... the view. But if we had to do it again, we'd just stick around Palm Harbor and vicinity, and we might wait until our kids were a bit older / more obedient / less clumsy too.

This was without a doubt the nicest home that I have ever stayed in while on vacation! I was there with my brother, sister-in-law, niece, great niece and great great nephew. We each had our own bedroom (mine was the Parrot Room) and it was wonderful. The home is not only gorgeous but well furnished and maintained. I enjoyed the view tremendously, the pool and all the area attractions. The owner was quick to meet us and give us a tour of the home and its features. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area.

What a great place!

One of the best vacations ever. Three families, 9 people in total, and there was still plenty of room. All of the amenities were first rate. The house was comfortable and well cared for. Kayaking, biking, beach, fishing, lounging in pool, stones throw from baseball games... all add up to a great time. Thank you very much.

Paradise for every age.

Seven family members from four generations (ages 1 to 85) gathered here for a winter getaway. The house was immaculate, the beds were comfy, and the kitchen had everything any cook could want. The pool was lovely and we were in it daily. We plan to come back so we can spend more time exploring in the kayaks and on the bikes. We got to know the egrets and the pelicans that "hung out" around the dock and when we had dolphins visit us, the 17 month old was ecstatic. The whole back of the house is glass so that even when you are inside, you feel like you are outside. I could go on and on about the TVs and wii and baby equipment but I will sum it up by saying that I cannot imagine a lovelier home than this one.

Mother of the Bride

The 3 story house over looking the bay was a perfect place to ready for our beach wedding on Valentine's Day! The house and property provided space for private talks, as well as socializing with family and dear friend as gomes, wii, big screen TVs, bikes and kayaks were graciously provided for our pleaseure. The heated pool also was a big splash for those demanding the Florida sun, as well as the decks and patio. The total back side of the three stories was glassed-in, inviting us to enjoy the dolphins, pelicans, cranes and other water creatures, along with the evening sunsets. The house was fully equipped with dishes, crock pot, grill, towels, linnens, washer/dryer, etc. The house became a home as it was comfortable for families and nicely decorated. The home and location is perfect for families with divers interests. We would highly recommend the home to others and would love to visit again!
